U.S. Suspends Sentencing Of Nigerian Fraudster, Obinwanne Okeke


Obinwanne Okeke


Okeke was arrested on charges of conspiring with some individuals to defraud American companies and individuals over a period of at least four years.


The sentencing of  36-year-old and Chairman of Abuja-based Invictus Group, Obinwanne Okeke has been suspended until next year.


Recall that Okeke was arrested by FBI officials in 2019 on charges of conspiring with some individuals, some of whom remain at large to defraud American companies and individuals over a period of at least four years.


He pleaded guilty to allegation of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and agreed to cooperate with the American authorities in June, after months of denying his involvement in the crime.


The sentencing of Okeke whose conviction might see him spend 20 years behind bars with up to $250,000 in fines amongst other potential penalties, was initially scheduled for October 22.


However on Monday October 5, the U.S. court sitting in the Eastern District of Virginia announced that it will be resetting Mr Okeke’s sentencing to February 16, 2021. He will still  be remanded in a U.S. federal prison.
